Christina Milian knows a clever idea when she sees one.

The singer — and mom to 4-year-old Violet — regrammed this creative take on a regular PB&J sandwich from her sister Liz’s Instagram feed.

“PB&J Sushi w/ Strawberry Coulis. This is a great way to convince kids that they like sushi,” read the original caption.

Even if you’re not angling for your little ones to dig into your spicy tuna rolls, the presentation of these pinwheel finger sandwiches may also work well for kids who are in a food rut and refusing to eat their old favorites. Sometimes, all that’s needed is a fresh (and fun!) look.

Better yet, this “sushi” couldn’t be easier to make:

1. Trim 2 slices of bread to form 2 long rectangles. (If you’re using thick-cut bread, you may need to flatten the slices with a rolling pin.)

2. Spread one side of the bread with a thin layer of peanut butter, followed by a thin layer of jelly.

3. Starting at one end, roll the bread until you’ve formed a coil.

4. Cut the roll into bite-size piece.

“Yummmm!” Christina wrote. And we couldn’t agree more.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Or just feed your kids actual sushi and actually be healthy. Who still eats white bread anyway?

KathyL on

This is wrong on so many levels: white bread and sugar overload. This isn’t rocket science – it’s a rolled sandwich!! Nothing creative or clever about this recipe. Must be a slow news day.

OMG people it is a cute sandwich for kids, they don’t care if it was first made 23 years ago. Get over yourselves!
